launcher

Ohhhhhhhh yeaaaaaah:

Ever wanted a potato gun but were worried it would blow up in your face. Never fear as we have the solution, the Can Cannon, a revolutionary way to launch things. Designed originally to launch a full 12 oz Soda Can 100-125 yards the cannon is capable of launching much more. Expect dog training decoys, Grappling Hook, T-Shirt Launching Capabilities, Net Shooter and a variety of other launch-able accessories.

Using blanks no doubt…. damn that’s awesome.  That thing would have some kick… now if only there were some way to make it magazine or belt fed.

xproducts-drink-can-launcherApparently this is still a prototype, and not in production yet.  I can’t find it on the X Products website, but I’m assuming that due to its serious awesomeness it will be produced sooner or later.

There is at least one company which makes an ar-15 golf ball launcher, but really if you can shoot drink cans why would you bother with golf balls?  I haven’t bought golf balls ever, or softdrinks in a while but I’m assuming cheap softdrinks in cans are cheaper than golf balls anyway, right?

Thoughts?

Those crafty Japanese toy inventors are at it again:

I definitely would try and build my own before I’d drop $361 USD (28,350 YEN) on this!  Besides the few custom parts, it looks like you could get most of the kit from Home Depot.

Too bad there’s not a youtube video of this in action.  There are a lot of vids of people shooting bottles into the air using bicycle pump rigged launch pads though so I assume this would be similar.

Thoughts?

Richard Ryan gets it done:

haha pretty neat idea.  He said he got the idea from this David Beckham video.

He should have played Queen – We Will Rock You and sang the lyrics.

Seattle Police said they recovered a grenade launcher and automatic weapons in their Thursday night raid of a house in Eastlake. Officers found two AR-15 assault rifles, one of which was equipped with a military style grenade launcher.

Good work guys… *slow clap* I know i’ll sleep better tonight knowing a recreational firework launcher is off the streets.

Blog reader Sean D. took it upon himself to deliver an email smackdown to reporter Jim Forman from KING5 news.  Here it is:
